Maternity massage consists of supervising the mother-to-be throughout her pregnancy and after childbirth. This massage consists of doing relatively gentle manipulations to accompany the pregnant woman through this important stage of her life. This type of massage allows her to accept her transforming body and to create a connection between her and the baby.
There are contraindications to massage depending on the pregnant woman’s health status: the history of miscarriage, fat at risk, diabetes, high blood pressure, preeclampsia, etc. It is essential in these situations to obtain the advice of the doctor or midwife who follow-up before resuming massage therapy appointments. However, a woman who is experiencing a normal pregnancy can be massaged at any time.
